Dean of Residence
Carey Theological College
Vancouver & Lower Mainland, Vancouver (UBC campus)
closes in 81 days (Fri, 21 Aug)
part time

Carey Hall is located within the bustling academic setting of UBC’s picturesque Vancouver campus. We are a small, innovative Christian college entering an exciting time of growth with new theological graduate degree and non-degree programs that are reaching international multi-ethnic Christian communities around the world. We also provide student residences and short- and long-term university accommodations and are poised for a major building expansion.


We're changing the face of theological education and need the right people to help us with our growth. We're a non-profit but we act like a start-up. We're seeking people who have a passion for Christian education and who will bring their "A-game" to the table to solve problems while executing our growth strategy.



We are looking for a Dean of Residence for 10 hours per week with the following skills to hit the ground running from August, 2020.


  • Pastoral care to 40 student residents of varying Christian backgrounds
  • Leading studies, prayer groups and worship times for student residents
  • Meeting one-on-one with students to provide leadership and spiritual guidance
  • Provide administrative support as it relates to student intake, move-in and move-outs
  • Lead an annual weekend retreat as well as other events as appropriate


Arrangements for onsite accommodations may be available.



We are interested in candidates who have demonstrated past experience in using their skills to solve problems. If you can show us how you have led projects even when you didn't have a leadership position, then we want to hear from you. You are a quick learner and can bring things to fruition with little guidance because you can understand the big picture and work the details and relationships to get the job done. Of utmost importance is having a heart to serve with humility. You are not afraid to admit you don’t know something but are also resourceful enough to find the answer. You present yourself professionally and know how to work well with people from varied backgrounds. We are in the midst of change and therefore you are able to navigate change calmly and with a sense of humour. You are able to bring tasks to full completion and understand the importance of accuracy. Fluency in written and spoken English in a professional setting is a requirement.


We thank you in advance for your interest in this position. The ability to legally work in Canada (as a citizen, resident or holding other current and valid work permit) is required. Only those candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
